: ARMAMENT AND WAR IN THE TWENTIETH CENTURY

A series of six programmes
4: The great arms race: post Second World War
The competition, both quantitative and qualitative, in armaments between the U.S.A. and the U.S.S.R.. which has now lasted for almost twenty years, has been in many ways the dominant factor in international politics for the entire postwar period, and has had some rather surprising results and side-effects.
The original contest, its transformation by the entry of China as a late starter, the role of the allies of the chief contenders, and the effects on states outside the central competition, are discussed by PHILIP WINDSOR
Lecturer in International Relations at the London School of Economics with DR. CORAL BELL
Reader in International Relations at the L.S.E. and MALCOLM MACKINTOSH
Member of the Consultative Committee on Soviet Affairs of the Institute for Strategic Studies
Produced by Adrian Johnson
Study Notes for ' An Age of Conflict ' are available. An accompanying exhibition is being held at the Imperial War Museum. Lambeth Road. London, S.E.I.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
